RB Leipzig News and Form
Leipzig will be heading to the Champions League next season after a good top three finish in the Bundesliga this season. They picked up a point in a recent 0-0 home draw against Bayern Munich, actually denying Bayern the league title on the day (albeit temporarily). So that should give them some confidence ahead of this, their first ever German Cup final. Their only previous fixture in the German Cup against Bayern Munich was back in 2017 when there was a 1-1 draw between them. Bayern Munich edged a dramatic penalty shootout though.
The stand out thing about Leipzig is their defence. They finished the Bundesliga season with the best defensive record of all teams. That having been said they have taken just one clean sheet in their last six fixtures. Ralf Rangnick’s men have lost just one of their last nineteen games across all competitions. That defeat was on the final day of the Bundesliga, a meaningless fixtures against Wolfsburg. Leipzig were probably looking ahead to this one. They will stay tight and organised and hope for a piece of magic up front from top scorer Timo Werner.

Bayern Munich News and Form
So Bayern wrapped up another league title. More of the same there. This is going to be the last time that Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery turn out for the club. So you imagine that both are going to want to end their Bayern Munich career on another high of winning the cup. The form that Bayern have produced since February has been immense. They won 11 of their final 14 league games to reel in Dortmund and beat them to the title.
Bayern Munich have won 12 of their last 17 games in all competitions (D4 L1). What could give Leipzig a glimmer of hope is that Bayern have taken just two clean sheets in their last seven games in all competitions. Partly down to team selection, of course, Bayern have had some close calls in this season’s German Cup. All five of their wins were by a one-goal margin (one of them after extra time). They have scored fourteen goals in their five cup games, keeping just the one clean sheet though. They were upset by Eintracht Frankfurt in last season’s final, will they make amends?
RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich Tips & Odds
Who will win – RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich Predictions
This is probably going to be more of the same between these two. Leipzig are so well organised in defence that they have what it takes to frustrate the Bavarians. But at the end of the day, it would be Bayern that would have to be backed, they may just be able to find that extra something special to get the title.
